Current Employee - Assistant Director of Admissions in Arlington, VA (US)
Current Employee - Assistant Director of Admissions in Arlington, VA (US)

I have been working at Argosy University full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-Loved the staff
-Very clean campus
-Did I mention staff
-Good amount of training

Cons

-Sometimes unrealistic expectations
-Financial aid office members are often time very rude and do not help students at initial contact

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reconsider how the financial aid office connects with students early on. Do not leave financial questions to the admissions team. Specific financial questions should be referred to the financial advisors, this is to include initial contact. Admissions advisors should not be a part of any of the financial process such as telling students how to get started with their financial aid process. This should all be handled by the finance department as this is suppose to be what they are experts at and paid to do.

    Former Employee - Core Faculty in Dallas, TX (US)

    I worked at Argosy University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The newest campus desired to offer opportunities to applicants who might not get into other graduate programs. The campus hired excellent faculty, interesting and diverse students, ability to develop one's own syllabus and teaching style, lots of ability to interact with students.

    Cons

    The campus was driving the car while building it. The campus president pushed large numbers of admissions to get his bonuses knowing many students were unprepared for such a diificult educational process. The higher up management disallowed the individual campus to decide when it was ready to apply for APA approval.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide guidelines and support for new campuses to acquire APA approval and offer bonuses for longevity of students & fculty not admission numbers.
